A purr-fectly hilarious portrait of life with a baby from a cat's point of view.

"This is a hilarious book by Beverly Cleary...and Neil Patrick Harris does a slam-bang job of presenting it....Both children and adults will roar with laughter." (School Library Journal)
"Younger listeners (who may themselves feel misunderstood by the big people in their lives, especially after the arrival of a new sibling) will especially appreciate this perspective. Parents listening along will enjoy Cleary's sharp and humorous insights into family life." (AudioFile)
I am a 7 year old boy. I really liked listening to this book. It's about a cat named Socks and his owners sell him to another family and after a while the family has a baby and it's really funny after that.
Really good book to listen to in the car with the family. My boys loved to hear this one over and over again. Great narration and, of course, great story about a cat and all his funny escapades in life from a kitten to the introduction of a new baby in the household.
I got this book for my daughter mainly because she already had the Henry Huggins collection and fell in love with how Neil Patrick Harris reads it. He does a great job on this book too. My daughter is a big audio reader and she gives this a two thumbs up. Good story and great reader!
Told from the kitty's point of view, Beverly Cleary really nailed the thoughts and emotions of a cat. Perfect for children with pets in the family, because by revealing that animals can have similar feelings, it helps them develop empathy for their furry friends. My guilty secret? I have to admit that, as a cat person, I love it too.
